Symptoms

Some Visual Studio 2013 features do not work as expected when Internet Explorer 10 or higher is not installed. This affects only Windows 7 users; Windows 8 and above are unaffected because the required dependencies are built into the operating system. The following features are known to not work as expected when Internet Explorer 10 or higher is not installed:

IntelliTrace: Performance Details page does not display as expected

When you use IntelliTrace to examine a log file that contains a performance violation event, you might experience issues after you click to view further details about the violation. The Performance Details page contains information about the execution tree of a performance violation event; however, when Internet Explorer 10 or higher is not installed, the Execution Tree section might appear blank and you also might encounter an error message.

Debug Managed Memory feature displays a blank page and an error dialog

When you open a managed dump file that contains heap information, the summary page includes an option to Debug Managed Memory. If you click this option when Internet Explorer 10 or higher is not installed, the resulting document window might be blank and you also might encounter an error message. If you encounter an error message, you can dismiss the error and then close the document window.

Load Testing with Team Foundation Service - Load Test Runner results do not render as expected

When you use Load Testing with Team Foundation Service and you select the option to Load Test Manager and then Load Test Runner, the page that displays information about the test results might not render correctly when Internet Explorer 10 or higher is not installed.

JavaScript Console and DOM Explorer windows do not display as expected

When you use Visual Studio 2013 for Web development and Internet Explorer 11 is not installed, the JavaScript Console and DOM Explorer windows do not display as expected. These features require Internet Explorer 11: If you are using Internet Explorer 10, you might encounter an error message that indicates these features are unsupported by your current browser; if you are using Internet Explorer 9 or earlier, the windows appear blank but you do not encounter the error message.
